Trump Spokesman: J6 Inquisition Using Bank Records For Intimidation

'Democracy is under attack. However, not by the people who illegally entered the Capitol on January 6th, 2021, but instead by a committee whose members walk freely in its halls every day... '

The director of communications for Save America and current spokesman for Donald Trump is suing the House January 6 committee over the Inquisition’s subpoena of his bank records after providing four hours of sworn testimony for the committee, said NBC News.

“I will not allow some politicians to intimidate me for my support of President Donald J. Trump, said Taylor Budowich, according to the National Pulse.

“Government should not be a weapon that’s freely used against political opponents and private citizens,” he wrote in a statement, “but it seems like this Democrat-led Congress is intent on codifying that precedent.”

The lawsuit says that Budowich had already provided 1,700 pages of documents requested by the committee panel before the committee demanded his bank records without proper notice.

“In addition to the panel, Budowich sued House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and JPMorgan Chase, according to the lawsuit,” said NBC.

The subpoena, which reached Budowich on Christmas eve, a federal holiday this year, is an attempt by the committee to determine who funded the January 6 rallies, according to CNN.

“The committee, which has moved aggressively in recent weeks, is using its subpoena power to follow the money surrounding the pro-Donald Trump rallies leading up to” the riot, said CNN.

But Budowich, in his statement, said that politics is behind the subpoena, claiming that neither the bank nor the committee has provided him with a copy of the actual subpoena.

“I returned home on December 23rd only to find a notice from my banking institution,” the Budowich statement continued, and when he contacted them neither the committee nor his bank would respond to his request for details of the subpoena.

“By circumventing my Constitutionally-protected rights, this Committee is only proving one thing: the Constitution only applies if your political party is in charge,” Budowich added.

The committee has been criticized previously for issuing subpoenas for telephone records of both journalists and private citizens.

Adam Schiff, Benny Thompson, and Nancy Pelosi’s attempts to strong-arm private companies to turn over individuals’ private data would put every American with a phone or computer in the crosshairs of a surveillance state run by Democrat politicians,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., about the telephone subpoenas, according to Fox News.

That assessment was shared by Budowich.

“Democracy is under attack,” he wrote in a statement. “However, not by the people who illegally entered the Capitol on January 6th, 2021, but instead by a committee whose members walk freely in its halls every day.”
